Ted Cruz

Ted Cruz has been on a mission to win the presidency and he has done everything in his power to give him the edge, but it all comes down to tonight.

A year ago, people knew Ted was going to run for president and very few people thought he would rise to the top of the 17-candidate pack. But he did.

Ted Cruz is not only second in delegates, but he also has the most effective “ground game” in the election. His team is peeling off delegates in each state possible and winning elections without votes because he is playing the game right.

The Texas senator has done everything he can to stop Trump. Teaming up with Rubio in the debates, teaming up with Kasich ahead of today’s primary, and even naming Carly Fiorina as a running mate.

He has done all he can, but it looks like it is not enough.

Looking at the average of all the polls, Trump is up 10.7% over Cruz going into today’s battle. The polls range from Trump up two points to over 17. But they all show him ahead.

The Carly Fiorina pick is looking like it didn’t have much effect on the voters and the Kasich partnership is hanging on by a thread.

Cruz has done everything he could possibly do to stop Trump and win the nomination, but is it enough?

Trump numbers are going up and even his national numbers have him beating Hillary Clinton now.

Tonight will be big for the Cruz campaign. Without a win tonight there is no real way to stop Trump from getting the 1,237 delegates needed before the GOP convention.

Will he win and stop Trump?

Will he and John Kasich even stay in if Trump wins?

There are going to be a lot of questions answered tonight and in the coming days, but even if Ted loses tonight and eventually doesn’t get the nomination, there isn’t a person in the Republican Party that doesn’t think Cruz will be back bigger, stronger and a better candidate in 2020.

What do you think? Will Ted Cruz win tonight in Indiana and keep his campaign going?

Ted Cruz

Ted Cruz is down to his last ounce of hope to become President of the United States but it may all be for nothing.

The Cruz campaign has to make a stand in Indiana to stop Trump or all hope will be lost. Everything from the messaging to the Tweets need to be perfect, because they can’t risk any mistakes.

Apparently Heidi Cruz didn’t get that message.

Speaking at a campaign stop in Indiana, Ted’s wife hit the trail to speak about how great her husband is and why he should be President.

One of the qualities that she finds most impressive is that Ted is an immigrant.

“Ted is an immigrant. He is Hispanic.”

Not only did she put the emphasis on the word “is”, but she may have ruined his whole campaign in the process.

Ted Cruz was born in Canada to a Cuban father, but is an American citizen by birth. Donald Trump is not the only one to bring up the fact that Cruz was born in Canada and is not allowed to run for president.

Although many legal experts think that the law qualifies Ted as being able to run for president, but not all of them.

Hardly ever in our history has there been a question about the legitimacy of a presidential candidate. Ironically it was also Donald Trump who brought up similar questions about Obama in 2008.

The issue has never made it to court and it is widely held that Cruz is eligible, but making statements saying Ted is an immigrant could put it all in doubt again. And any doubt leading up to Indiana is not good.

Angie's List Indiana

The consumer review site, Angie’s List, has dropped expansion of services in the entire state of Indiana citing disappointment with the state’s new “Religious Freedom Restoration Act” which allows businesses to refuse service to anyone based upon their religious beliefs.

In other states, business owners are being sued and investigated for refusing to provide service.

In Oregon, Sweet Cakes, a local bakery refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple due to their Christian beliefs and was investigated by the state and sued for discrimination.

In Colorado, Masterpiece Cakeshop, refused service in a similar scenario and was sued by Colorado’s Attorney General.

Several other instances, specifically involving wedding services have cropped up around the nation and have been dubbed in the gay community as the “Cake Wars.”

Rather than respect the rights of small business owners, Angie’s List has made the choice to back a political movement by boycotting Indiana.

The site’s CEO, Bill Oesterle, stated, “Angie’s List is open to all and discriminates against none and we are hugely disappointed in what this bill represents.”

Oesterle, a Republican, faced criticism in the past for refusing to drop its sponsorship of Rush Limbaugh’s radio program after the Sandra Fluke comment outrage. While Angie’s list did not immediately drop its advertising with Rush, it did not renew the sponsorship at the end of the year.

Angie’s List’s political pandering falls in line with the actions of A&E and other corporations that heavily weigh the complaints of a very small segment of Americans.
